MOLD TESTING & REMOVAL

What is MOLD?

Mold is a term used to refer to fungi that grow in the form of multicellular thread-like structures called hyphae. Mold can be found on the inside, as well as the outside of your home. Mold can grow as a result of flooding, sewage back–up, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, damp basements, over flows from sinks, high humidity, steam from cooking, dryer vents and humidifiers – all damp areas. If problems go undetected or are not restored immediately, mold growth can form and cause a multitude of damages.

Where is it found?

Common places to test for mold are near sinks, walls that may have moisture seep through from the outside (especially concrete walls), windowsills, and areas that may be exposed to flooding or other water damage. Areas that have not dried out within one day are likely to form mold.

One of the most common areas for mold growth is in basements. Be sure to check regularly behind baseboards, carpet padding, carpeted edges – specifically areas that edge concrete walls, behind and under cabinets, and any other areas that may have contact with water or moisture.

If you believe you have mold in your home, there are ways to clean it yourself however, it is best to have it professionally removed and cleaned to ensure that the entire affected area has been found and properly cleaned and disposed of.
Our crews are trained specifically in mold remediation, and will give you the best recommendation for your situation, as each situation differs.
